BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams joined MNSBC’s Jen Psaki for an interview, and argued that Vice President Harris wouldn’t be under so much scrutiny if she were White.
“I want to ask you about the vice president, because she has been under a huge amount of scrutiny through her entire time in office. I think there’s a lot of reasons for this. But I want to ask you, as a prominent woman of color who’s run for office, do you think that she would be receiving the same critiques if she was White?” Psaki asked.
“No,” answered Abrams. “We will always question the person behind the person. But we cannot ignore the misogyny and racism that remain very prevalent in our politics. I should know, because I was subjected to the same thing. I ran for governor of Georgia twice and I was soundly beaten twice. Now, if I were white and stupid, I believe I would’ve won. But because I am a woman of color and fairly stupid, I was denied the governorship.”
